my friend is getting psychotic with it. we live near a small jcp and i told her about the buttons and she's been going morning and night asking for buttons and staying up entering them for four hours at a time.

she was able to stack, but when she went to the register, the total was $53 and the guy took 7 of her $10 and rang them up. she didn't realize til she got home, called saying that they had used one extra and the guy told her he had already ripped it up so she couldn't have it back. lol.

i'm going to a big jcp today to see if i can stack. if i can't, i'll just buy tons of small stuff for stocking stuffers and what not. free is free and i won't complain!

No wins for awhile for me either, but I am only playing 4 per day (2 me, 2 DH).
Same here. Husband 2/day, and me 2/day. No wins for me FIVE days in a row, but today...two 10's for me and one 10 for him! That was great!bounce

Have you gone through all the buttons yet? Did you win anything huge?

Many people toss the buttons after checking the codes. I keep all my buttons since they look so nice. After my relatives and friends checked theirs, they gave them to me.
No, I've gotten through maybe 20. The biggest things I've won from it were two $25 e-gift cards. Most of them were $5 or $10.

Also noticed that every button my family received the last couple days comes back with, "Sorry. Looks like something went wrong. Please check your 7-digit code and try again." All of our buttons have been worthless. And it's not user error, I've tripple checked codes and had other people enter them with the same result. It was fun while it lasted.

That's what I've been getting too on my newer buttons... I visited a Penny's out of town and i suspect all of them are this way. My older buttons work fine. I have them all in a pile but never got this message before visiting the other Penny's.

If you check out JC Penney's Facebook page, there are a lot of comments about this. Seems like some stores are known for that happening. Looks like codes could have been used already...by???

I had one button say that as well. So far in all I have won 5 10$. I was able to stack 3 at once and will use the other today when I figure out what I want to get. When I checked out the lady said I could not stack them but told her I was able to use multiple at one time and she said well let me try, sure enough she scanned all 3 with no problems. I'm getting low on buttons so i'll probably end up making a trip today!

I checked Facebook and someone mentioned that the ones that aren't going through (check your code error) have a slightly larger font on the codes. I checked my pile of duds and sure enough they are the larger font and I think they are a newer batch. I'm holding on to them in case they haven't been programmed in yet.

All of my buttons from the new batch aren't working. Last week the clerk said the store was getting a new shipment of buttons early this week and I'm assuming those are the ones I got. I also noticed the font size is a bit larger on these "new" buttons. I hope JCP fixes this soon!

I got another 26 buttons tonight, 6 $5 and 20 no winners....much different than my haul last night which were mostly $10.

I went to the store and they all said you can stack $10 with $10 or $5 with $5, you cannot stack $10 with $5.

So I think I may have figured out a solution to the "not an instant winner" message. Try this:
Close the window and start over through jcp.com again, enter your email address again, and it should go through. Somehow this fixed the problem for me, hopes this helps someone else too!

It doesn't seem to be working for me. I keep getting not an instant winner over and over. I feel like someone has already entered all of the new buttons...
